If you like to pick, brine and eat olives or maybe fancy producing your own olive oil, you’ll love 94 Goomalling Road. There’s an olive grove with over 100 mature olive trees, probably more than 30 years old on the back half of the 1 hectare block. If you don’t like olives, there are a lot of other features of this property to fall in love with.
The block is located near to the highest elevation of Goomalling Road on aptly named Doctors Hill. Over much of Northam’s history, one or a number of local GPs have chosen to reside up in the high part of Northam, away from the hustle and bustle of town centre drama, enjoying late night cool summers breezes that the valley dwellers don’t get. And then there’s the view…
You’ll love living up here at No 94. You’ll come home from work, kick off your shoes, plop down at the patio setting on the front verandah, pour you favourite drink and listen to the Magpies in the trees as you unwind and ruminate over the day’s activities and what tomorrow holds. Or you’ll watch the winter sport of Hot Air Ballooning as the pilots guide their bobbing craft over the house destined for the aeroclub.
And when you’re tired of socking up the valley views, you can move out the back. There’s a lovely sheltered patio area attached to the rear of the house, the perfect spot for family barbecues as it over looks a lush grassed area, garden and the olive grove.
It’s simply the perrr-fect family home with plenty of different zones for different family members to occupy. There’s a formal lounge at the front of the house with a wide window allowing that same verandah panorama to enter indoors.
The nerve centre of the home is the kitchen. It’s well appointed, modern, clean and bright and in open plan format to the dining area. It’s a neutral zone, where family comes together to share a meal before retiring to the formal lounge, to the bedrooms, an informal sunroom or, just a few steps across the back verandah, to a games room.
The games room is really the laundry but it’s sooo big that the owner couldn’t resist putting the space to a better use. The laundry bench is more like a kitchen bench complemented by a kettle, toaster, fridge, sofa and telly; what more could you ask for?
There are 3 bedrooms, a family bathroom and 2 toilets. I really like the 2nd bedroom, an excellant spot for Granma, if she lives with you. It’s primary access door is off the front entry hall but it has an adjoining sitting-room, like a vestibule with a secondary door to the sunroom. This room has a 2nd toilet and huge closet. I foresee a new owner installing a shower recess and Granma or your studying teenager having first dibs on who will rule this area.
There’s a carport that fits about 4 vehicles and an older shed down the backyard to park the kids’ quad bike, the ride-on-mower or whatever. Imagine the possibilities if you chose to harvest the fruit from those mature olive trees. Venture into the cold pressed extra virgin olive oil business.
